Hello to all my Artist & Art Lovers, I hope everyone is doing well.
I have been busy as usual painting away. I have been working on a piece that is quite special to me. I poured my heart out into this one, so I couldn't wait to share it with you guys. This is a portrait of girlfriend. I kept putting this piece off because I wanted to make sure I found the right picture and angle to really define her beauty. I made her my first live model and took a couple pictures and found the one that worked best. I am really fascinated by the human body and this piece really displayed this passion in me. The curves that form the legs and arms, the way the skin is gently stretched across the muscles underneath and the subtle way the sunlight hits the contours of the body, all that really amazes me. After I painted all that, I added a couple of clusters of yellow flowers because that is her favourite colour and placed some Monarch butterflies as small accent pieces just to give it some extra life. I hope you guys like it.
